Given the housing condition, I know buyer don't have much choices in terms of location and price but in case if you still need to select the location within chandler which one you recommend to select if I have kids going to elementary and high school. My most preferred block is between Ocotillo Rd & Chandler Heights and Gilbert Rd & Lindsay. This block seems to have rate par with any chandler area but have many advantage.

1. Gilbert Rd seems to be new Center location of South Chandler.
2. Two great school - walking distance (ACP High School and Ryan Elementary).
3. Great park and house quality.
4. Close to Sprout, Fry's etc.

This seems to be great location. Only issue is availability of houses here....most of the houses are big and we need to go price war in this market.

Let me know any other location that you feel is better than this.

Yeah there is nothing available in that block. You could look at Ocotillo in that price range...Or Carino Estates. Or bump over to Finesterra

There are some new builds going in on Ocotillo east of Arizona Ave.

First of all you don't need to be in that square mile or the one directly to the West of that to attend that school. It is open enrollment. Having said that I know a guy that just bought a $1M house in that area (West of Gilbert Rd though) out of the Hamilton boundary to have his kid attend ACP and play sports.

There's been 20 sales in the square mile you're talking about in the past 90 days with a median of $680k and there's 2 under contract, no actives. Just outside of that boundary to the East is a new construction community called Canopy which might be your best bet.

I was actually in this situation nearly a year ago. I ended up signing a contract with Taylor Morrison for a home in Chandler in their Bellaza subdivision for 700k. Now fast forward to March when it was time to deliver, I re-sold the home without doing any landscaping, no washer/dryer, no window treatments for 815k and ended up buying in Scottsdale instead. It is a great area, no doubt. Great schools and convenience. But, in my opinion it is starting to turn too dense and busy with cookie-cutter homes and track-builder construction. Also, judging from your name you are of South Asian descent. Chandler and Gilbert seem to be very popular with South Asians, I am a first generation South-Asian myself. I grew up in the midwest, and personally did not like the almost ghettoizing of Chandler/Gilbert that I saw so I decided to get out and go to Scottsdale. Again, it is a great area but the inventory is limited. I closed on my house on Monday and got a signed offer on Thursday 115k above my purchase price. It's crazy out there, but I wish you luck.

ACP Erie will have boundary and will only allow limited open enrollment as they need to also accomodate ACP Oakland. Anyways for me my daughter is already in ACP, point is if I have to buy then what will be my preferred location. I know it is difficult to get home in this block. I lost one chance few month ago and now regret it.
